A Pakistani official was caught on camera stealing the wallet of a Kuwaiti delegate on Friday which is an embarrassing incident for Pakistan. The incident occurred when the Kuwaiti delegation was visiting Pakistan for a Joint Ministerial Commission meet. They launched an official complaint upon discovering that a wallet had gone missing during a session of the Economic Affairs Division. On reviewing the footage on the CCTV (of the Finance Ministry of Pakistan), a video was uncovered where the Grade 20 GoP official can be seen picking up a wallet.
The video, which has gone viral, was posted on Twitter by Pak journalist Omar R Quraishi. The wallet was recovered from the officer and was returned to the Kuwaiti delegate with a formal apology from the Pak government. As per reports, the official was arrested and criminal proceedings have begun against him.
